Condition: M $10.00
One of a Kind (Love Affair) (Long Version)/ Don't Let The Green Grass Fool YouThis is a new, unplayed stock copy of the original, long version (3:31) with a drillhole, in its original Atlantic factory sleeve. There's a reason this song is in the top half of Dave Marsh's list of the 1001 greatest singles ever made... It's a perfect Philly soul record. Note: Quite by accident, I discovered that Atlantic pulled this original version, clocking at 3:31 minutes, and replaced it with one that's 11 seconds shorter... 3:20. I noticed it when adding a promo copy, which was labeled "New Version" and has the 3:20 time. Curious, I checked my other stock, and most of the cutouts were the 3:31 release. What's the difference? I had to record both and do a comparison in my audio editor, but it turns out that the trimmed bit has what might have been mistaken for an offensive lyric. The bit comes right after the instrumental bridge, where Phil Wynne sings,
One of a kind love affair is...
Makes you wanna love her,
You just gotta hug her, yeah...

The first couple of times I listened to it today, I thought Wynne was singing, "You just gotta hurt her, yeah," and I suspect that's what some other listeners thought, giving Atlantic an earful I suppose.

Much ado about nothing? Heck no! This is the kind of trivia that makes 45 collecting so special, and so different from collecting other forms of vinyl!

So now you know... Go back and check your own copy of this gem! I'm curious to know how many 3:20 copies are out there, and how many 3:31's, aren't you? :-)
